Comment (by boonebgorges):

 Thanks for the analysis and suggestions, danbp. I agree on almost your
 points. The current Friends widget is a bit confused.

 I think we could make it even simpler than what you've suggested:

 [avatar] ralph
          friends since july 2013
          active right now

 [avatar] Daniel
          friends since july 2014
          active 20 minutes ago

 This would always be sorted in order of most recently active, and we'd do
 away with the AJAX filters.

 Regarding "online now": We don't have a very reliable way of determining
 this at the moment. The Who's Online widget just queries for users who
 have been active in the last 5 minutes.

 It's also worth noting that currently the Friends widget displays the
 friends of the *displayed* user. In retrospect, it might make more sense
 to show the friends (if any) of the *logged-in* user. That seems like it
 would be of more general use.
